Sunshine on a rainy day

Ok, so maybe the sun isn't shining. Maybe hubby is home injured and it doesn't look like we will be working in the garden this weekend. This is not cause for despair. Or much anyway. We can still sit on the deck and watch the rain. And have..... a cocktail? On a weekday afternoon? Fabulous!
I concocted this drink looking for sunshine in a glass. A drink able to lift one's spirits and bring hope that summer will soon be here. But don't take my word for it, try it yourself. I must warn you though, do not operate any heavy machinery after, like the telephone or the remote. Just relax, uncurl your toes and dream of summer.

In a blender, combine:

1/2 pineapple, peeled and chunked
1/2 mango, peeled and chunked
2 oz Uphoria Pomegranate Liquer
1 oz Uphoria Pink Guava Liquer
2 oz banana liquor
4 large ice cubes, or equivalent smaller ones
4 oz orange juice
4 oz vodka

Whiz up to combine, serve in cocktail glasses with a fruit garnish. Makes 4 drinks.
